have the opportunity for gainful employment; and 

Whereas, physically handicapped workers have 
proved capable of productive work in jobs suitable 
to their training and capacities, and have demon- 
strated that they deserve to be retained and ad- 
vanced in their positions; and 

Whereas, our nation will be materially strength- 
ened by the use of the talents and abilities of all 
citizens; and 

Whereas, there is a continuing need for a pro- 
gram of information and enlightenment designed 
to increase the employment opportunities for the 
physically handicapped: 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim October 
4 through October 10 as Employ the Physically 
Handicapped Week in Chicago, and do urge busi- 
ness, industry and labor, as well as all specialized

especial attention to the Illinois State Employ- 
ment Service as a medium for the placement of 
qualified physically handicapped workers in suit- 
able employment. 

Dated this first day of October, A. D. 1953. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly,

Negro College Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, all Americans of true democratic spirit 
are intensely interested in the welfare and progress 
of our Negro fellow citizens ; and 

Whereas, the means of extending to them in- 
creased benefits and greater opportunities is, in 
great measure, vested in the Negro colleges of the 
country; and 

Whereas, the Eleventh Annual Convocation of 
thirty-one of these United Negro Colleges will be 
held for the first time in our city during the week 
beginning October 5; and 

Whereas, all Chicago welcomes and honors the 
representatives and faculty members of these col- 
leges participating in the Convocation; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
week of October 5 through October 10 as "Negro 
College Week in Chicago" and urge all citizens to 
aid and encourage this worthy work now and there- 
after.

subjects designated below, were filed in the City 
Clerk's office on October 14, 1953, which proclama- 
tions read respectively as follows: 

Employ the Physically Handicapped Week. 

Whereas, it is the desire, the right and almost

Junior Ambassador Day in Chicago.

of their respective histories the warmest friend- 
ship and accord between the United States and 
her sister republics of Central and South America; 
and 

Whereas, this bond of friendship is appreciated 
with particular depth in the City of Chicago, many 
of whose citizens maintain academic, cultural and 
commercial relationships with the citizens of Cen- 
tral and South America; and 

Whereas, in these critical times the friendship 
of the people of one nation for those of another 
is particularly to be cherished ; and

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCn^CHICAGO 



October 14, 1953 



Whereas, as an expression of friendship for the 
people of Chicago 35 "Junior Ambassadors", ap- 
pointed by the Presidents of seven Central and 
South American nations, will visit Chicago Satur- 
day, October 10; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim Satur- 
day, October 10, as Junior Ambassador Day in 
Chicago, and urge all citizens to be mindful of the 
accord existing between the nations represented 
by these young "Ambassadors" and the people of 
our nation and our city. 

Dated this 7th day of October, A.D. 1953. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

M<xyor. 



an intensive campaign of public enlightenment 
concerning nutrition; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
week of November 15 to 21 as "Nutrition Week in 
Chicago", and urge all citizens to take cognizance 
of the objectives of this program of stimulating 
public awareness and to be mindful that good nu- 
trition adds years to life and life to years for the 
benefit of the individual and our community as 
a whole. 

Dated this 14th day of October, A. D. 1953. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 
Mayor. 



Epilepsy Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, about one person in every two hun- 
dred or approximately five per cent of the total 
population of the United States suffers from epi- 
lepsy; and 

Whereas, in terms of sorrow and damaged lives 
the toll of epilepsy is tragically high, and, eco- 
nomically, it deprives our nation of an estimated 
minimum of $60,000,000 annually in manpower lost; 
and 

Whereas, much of the problem created by epi- 
lepsy can be overcome by proper medical and social 
care made possible through increased public under- 
standing of the malady, replacing myth and super- 
stition with facts found in research laboratories; 
and 

Whereas, cures for epilepsy, as those for other 
maladies, ultimately will be found through re- 
search and the development of facilities for modern 
medical treatment; 

Now, Therefore, I, Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor 
of the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the 
period from October 25 through October 31 as 
"Epilepsy Week in Chicago" and urge all citizens to 
lend all possible support to the efforts being made 
to minimize the effects of and discover cures for 
this serious threat to the welfare and happiness 
of individuals and to the general well-being of our 
nation and of our community. 

Dated this 8th day of October, A. D. 1953. 
(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 



Nutrition Week in Chicago. 

Whereas, the importance of nutrition in the 
individual and general welfare, as a preventive 
disease as an indispensable factor in happiness 
and productivity, has come to be universally rec- 
ognized; and 

Whereas, it is desirable that the future well- 
being of our people and our community be insured 
by increased awareness of the importance of nu- 
trition in daily life ; and 

Whereas, the science of nutrition has made great 
strides in Chicago through research in our hos- 
pitals, clinics and medical schools and through the 
dissemination of information through schools and 
libraries and other media ; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Nutrition Association and 
the Illinois State Nutrition Committee have chosen 
the period from November 15 to November 21 for

Decision of Supreme Court of Illinois Affecting Val- 
idity of Comprehensive Amendment of Chicago 
Zoning Ordinance, of December 3, 19^2. 

Also the following communication from the Cor- 
poration Counsel addressed to the City Council under 
date of September 30, 1953, signed by L. Louis Kar- 
ton, Head of Appeals and Review Division and by 
Arthur Magid, Assistant Corporation Counsel, which 
was Referred to the Committee on Buildings and Zon- 
ing: 

"Re Ray Zilien, et al., Appellees, v. The 

City of Chicago, Appellant; Supreme 

Court No. 32682. 

"Gentlemen — This is to advise you that on 
September 24, 1953, the Supreme Court of Illinois 
affirmed the judgment of the Circuit Court of 
Cook County in the above captioned cause, holding 
invalid and unenforceable the amendatory zoning 



ordinance of December 3, 1942 insofar as it re- 
zoned the subject property from commercial to 
business use. The property involved in this action 
is located on the west side of S. Ashland Avenue 
between 92nd and 90th Streets. Under the original 
zoning ordinance of 1923, both sides of S. Ashland 
Avenue from 95th to 87th Streets were zoned for 
commercial use. By the amendatory zoning ordi- 
nance of 1942, the three blocks from 95th to 92nd 
Streets were continued as commercial, the two 
blocks from 92nd to 90th Streets were rezoned to 
business use, the block between 90th and 89th 
Streets was continued as commercial, and the two 
blocks from 89th to 87th Streets were rezoned to 
business use. Under the 1923 zoning, the property 
in question could have been used as a used-car 
lot; under the 1942 zoning, such use was pro- 
hibited. No used-car lots were opened up in the 
area in question until the latter part of 1945, or 
the early part of 1946. Since then, a large part of 
the frontage on both sides of Ashland Avenue has 
been devoted to used-car lots. The districts both 
to the east and west of S. Ashland Avenue, from 
95th to 87th Streets, are almost entirely residen- 
tial, the area to the west being devoted to single 
family residence use, and the area to the east 
being devoted to apartment use. Most of the de- 
velopment in this area to the east and west of 
Ashland Avenue occurred subsequent to 1942, but 
to some extent also between 1923 and 1942. Much 
of the property along both sides of Ashland Ave- 
nue, between 95th and 87th Streets, is vacant, but 
most of the uses to which this frontage was de- 
voted in 1942 were of a business nature, there be- 
ing only two small commercial uses along that 
entire frontage. 

"The Supreme Court of Illinois adopted the view 
that since there was no substantial change in the 
character of the area between 1923 and 1942, there 
was no reasonable basis for the change in classi- 
fication of a portion of the Ashland Avenue front- 
age from commercial to business use. Moreover, 
the court characterized the rezoning as a "leap- 
frogging pattern" of zoning, and as an "erratic 
pattern of zoning". The Court declared as follows: 
"No reason suggests itself, nor has any been ad- 
vanced, which justifies the city's action of alter- 
nating between 'business' and 'commercial' use in 
the eight blocks of Ashland Avenue frontage in- 
volved. It would appear, rather, that certain of the 
blocks were arbitrarily singled out for rezoning to 
business use." The fact that the districts to the 
east and west of Ashland Avenue were devoted to 
residential uses along the entire frontage between 
95th and 87th Streets was considered by the Court 
to require a consistent zoning pattern along the 
entire eight blocks of Ashland Avenue frontage, 
instead of the intermittent zoning pattern adopted. 

"The Supreme Court reiterated the principles 
announced in Phipps v. City of Chicago, 339 111. 
315 (1930), that unless there has been a change 
in the character of the area, a rezoning thereof 
will not be considered as bearing any reasonable 
relation to the public good, and that a property 
owner has the right to rely upon the rule of law 
that the classification of his property will not be 
changed unless the change is required for the pub- 
lic good. In the case under discussion, these prin- 
ciples were applied to areas which were compara- 
tively undeveloped in 1942 and to street frontages 
which were largely vacant. 

"The effect of this decision is to freeze the 1923 
ordinance into a static zoning pattern, which, re- 
gardless of original zoning errors, cannot be de- 
parted from except upon a showing of substantial 



October 14, 1953

changes in particular areas and upon a further 
showing that the rezoning bears a reasonable rela- 
tion to the public good. Until our Supreme Court 
adopts a more liberal attitude towards zoning, 
there is little hope that zoning ordinances can be 
used to halt the rapid deterioration of urban areas 
by rezoning them to higher uses. 

"The City has until October 9, 1953 within which 
to file a notice of intention to apply for a rehear- 
ing, and until October 19, 1953 to file a petition 
for rehearing. However, in view of the unanimity 
of the decision of the Illinois Supreme Court, and 
the nature of the doctrines upon which it is based, 
we believe that it would be futile to apply for a 
rehearing. 

"A copy of the Supreme Court opinion is hereto 
attached."

or controls the vacant land mentioned and has of- 
fered the City $33,000. for the additional land 
needed for the building relocation; that this offer 
of $33,000. is almost twice what the City originally 
paid for the land; that the land that was acquired 
for the superhighway will no longer be needed if 
the building is moved since the wall of the building 
will form a retaining wall along the east side of 
the highway; that the land was formerly acquired 
to permit the construction of a back-slope for the 
east side of the expressway ; that it is in the finan- 
cial interest of the City to retain valuable property 
on the tax rolls wherever possible; that in addi- 
tion the right-of-way for the expressway can be 
cleared at considerable savings to the City and will 



retain a substantial building for the printing trades 
of a type which is extremely scarce in the city of 
Chicago; that retaining this building for special 
tenants may well preclude many business firms 
now occupying the building from moving to loca- 
tions outside the city ; that in view of all the bene- 
fits to be derived from moving Building No. 52 
he is recommending for approval a draft of an 
order authorizing the Purchasing Agent, City of 
Chicago, to enter into a contract between the City 
and Sam Shatten whereby Mr. Shatten for the sum 
of $140,000 to be paid by the City to Mr. Shatten 
agrees to move Building No. 52, situated at 732 
W. Van Buren Street, from the right-of-way of the 
Northwest Expressway; it is hereby 

Ordered That the City Council hereby approves 
and authorizes the Purchasing Agent to enter into 
a contract between the City and Mr. Sam Shatten 
whereby Mr. Shatten for the sum of $140,000.00 to 
be paid by the City to him agrees to move Building 
No. 52 situated at 732 W. Van Buren Street from 
the right-of-way of the Northwest Expressway.

tistics relative to railroad-motive-power use in the 
City of Chicago, and to request that the said report 
be published and Placed on File. 

This recommendation w^as concurred in by 10 
members of the committee, with no dissenting 
votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) RoY E. Olin, 

Chairman. 

On motion o± Alderman Olin the committee's rec- 
ommendation was concurred in. 

The engineer's report transmitted with the fore- 
going committee report reads as follows: 

Chicago, September 1, 1953. 

Alderman Roy E. Olin, 

Chairman, City Council Committee on 

Railway Terminals, 
Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir — Attached hereto are six ( 6 ) sheets 
containing statistics relative to railroad motive 
power use in the City of Chicago. The statistics 
are based on information furnished your Commit- 
tee by each of the 34 railroads operating in Chi- 
cago and show average daily engine hours in each 
class of service. 

Your staff has previously reported the motive 
power use picture in Chicago for the years 1947 
and 1950. It is interesting to note the pattern of 
the increase during that time in the use of diesel 
power. 

Percent of Dieselization 

1947 1950 1952 

Switching 46.8 77.5 90.9 

Freight 10.4 27.7 69.0 

Passenger 62.8 67.8 75.6 

Total: 48.5 74.9 87.7 

Percent of Service 

1947 1950 1952 

Switching 80.7 81.6 80.7 

Freight 2.8 2.0 3.4 

Passenger 16.5 16.4 15.9 

Total: 100.0 100.0 100.0 

The 34 railroads are collectively 90.9% dieselized 
in their switching service, compared with a nation- 
wide average of 78.44%. In considering only the 
13 switching and terminal companies, the dieseliza- 
tion in Chicago is 96.8%, compared with a nation- 
wide average of 90.46%. 

Of the 34 railroads, 21 are trunk-line, and 13 are 
switching. 

Of the 21 trunk-line railroads, as of December, 
1952, 9 were 100% dieselized in all services, 12 have 
their switching service 100% dieselized, 7 have 
their freight service dieselized, 11 are 100% diesel- 
ized in through passenger service and 4 have their 
suburban passenger service 100 S^ dieselized. Six 
of the 21 trunk lines terminate their freight hauls 
at outlying yards beyond the city limits, one does 
no switching and one operates no passenger service 
within the city limits. Eight of the 21 trunk lines 
and one switching railroad operate a suburban 
service. 

The 12 trunk lines operating partly with coal- 
burning engines are collectively 81% dieselized and 
operate 56% of the total diesel motive power in the 
city. Three of these are 100% dieselized in switch- 



ing service. Three of these are 100% dieselized in 
through passenger service. Four operate no freight 
service within the city limits and one is 100% 
dieselized in suburban service. 

The 13 switching railroads are as follows: 

The Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal Rail- 
road Company is owned by The Baltimore & 
Ohio Railroad Company and furnishes terminal 
facilities and trackage for the '^. ^z ^■. M St.P. 
& S.S.M., C.G.W., and the P.M. V" l-n-kc; serve a 
large industrial area from Whiting, Indiana, to 
the northwest part of Chicago. This railroad had 
expected to be 100% dieselized before the end of 
1952, but due to an increase in business had to 
put some coal-burning locomotives back in serv- 
ice. They have placed no orders for diesel equip- 
ment to handle this increase at the present time. 
As of October, 1952, they operated 237 diesel en- 
gine hours and 85 coal-lDurning hours. 

Chicago and Calumet River Railroad Company 
is owned by the Pressed Steel Car Co., for whom 
it renders service. It is 100% dieseliz?d. 

The Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad Com- 
iT^nv is owneH by <-he CI. & L., C. & E. I., Erie, 
G.T.W, and Wabash, each of which owns 20% . 
It furnishes passenger-terminal facilities for the 
five owning railropHs and the Santa Fe. In addi- 
tion to the general passenger-car switching in 
the coach yard and station, it furnishes a limited 
suburban service betv/een the Dearborn Station 
and Dolton, Illinois. It is 100% dieselized. 

The Belt Railway Company of Chicago is own- 
ed by twelve railroads: C.B.'& Q., C.R.I. & P.. C. 
& E. I, Erie, G.T.W., Pennsylvania, Wabash, I.C, 
M. St.P. & S.M., A.T. & S.F., C. & O., and C.I. & 
L., each of which owns an equal share, and is op- 
erated by the Chicago & Western Indiana Rail- 
road Company. It operates Clearing Yard and 
has a direct connection with all trunk-line rail- 
roads operating in Chicago. It is 100% dieselized. 

Pullman Railroad is owned by the Rock Island 
and serves industries in the Pullman-Kensington 
area. Its principal activity is furnishing service 
to the Pullman-Standard Car & Manufacturing 
Company. It is 100% dieselized. 

Chicago Short Line Railway Company is lo- 
cated at South Chicago. Its principal activity is 
serving industries in the Calumet area. It is 
100% dieselized. 

Chicago, West Pullman & Southern Railroad 
Company is owned by the International Har- 
vester Company and operates between West Pull- 
man and Irondale, Illinois. It is 100% dieselized. 

Elgin, Joliet and Eastern Railway Company is 
owned by the United States Steel Corporation 
and is classed as the Outer Belt Line, operating 
between Porter, Indiana, on the south and Wau- 
kegan, on the north. Its only activity within the 
city limits of Chicago is in the South Chicago 
area. It is 100% dieselized. 

Chicago & Illinois Western Railroad is owned 
and operated by the Illinois Central Railroad and 
furnishes switching service between the west side 
of Chicago and McCook, Illinois. This road is 
100% dieselized. 

Illinois Northern Railway is owned by the San- 
ta Fe, Burlington, Pennsylvania and New York 
Central Railroads. Its principal activity is to 
render service to the International Harvester 
Company on the west side of Chicago. 

Manufacturers' Junction Railway Company, lo- 
cated on the west side of Chicago, is owned by 



JOURNAL—CITY COUNCn^-CHICAGO 



October 14, 1953 



the Western Electric Company, which is its prin- 
cipal user. This road is 100% dieselized. 

Indiana Harbor Belt Railway is owned by the 
New York Central, Michigan Central, Milwaukee 
and North Western, and is operated by the New 
York Central. It circles the City of Chicago and 
has direct connections with all trunk lines oper- 
ating in Chicago. This road is 100% dieselized. 
Chicago River & Indiana Railroad Co. is owned 
and operated by the New York Central. It serves 
an industrial area on the south and west sides. 
This road is 100% dieselized. 
According to the information received from the 
railroads, it is expected that as of January, 1954, 
only 4 of the trunk-line railroads will be operating 
any coal-burning equipment in switching service, 7 
in freight service, 5 in through passenger and 3 in 
suburban service, as follows: 

B. & O. in freight and through passenger. 

C. & N.W. in switching, freight, through and 
suburban passenger. 

CM. St.P. & P. in suburban passenger. 

G.T.W. in switching, freight, and through pas- 
senger. 

N.Y.C. in switching, freight, through, and sub- 
urban passenger. 

M.C. in freight. 

N.Y.C. & St.L. in freight, and through pas- 
senger. 

Penn. in switching and freight. 
The trunk-line railroads, according to present 
plans, expect that by January, 1955, they will be 
collectively 95% dieselized, with the individual 
services being dieselized as follows: Switching 
100%, freight 89%, through passenger 89% and 
suburiaan passenger 75%. 

The following trunk-line railroads are those 
which expect to be operating some of their engine 
hours with coal-burning equipment after January 1, 
1955: 

The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company — 6 
hours freight and 5 hours through passenger. No 
date has been set for completing their dieseliza- 
tion program. 

Chicago and North Western Railway System — 
161 engine hours in suburban service. Recent 
newspaper articles have stated North Western 
Suburban service is to have additional diesels 
available about January 1, 1954. Your staff, how- 
ever, has no definite information on this. 

Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Rail- 
road Company — 75 engine hours in suburban 
service. The Milwaukee has no definite plans for 
dieselizing its suburban service as far as we 
know. 

Grand Trunk Western Railway Company — 18 
engine hours in through passenger service. This 
railroad expects to be 100% dieselized by 1957. 

New York Central System — 15 hours in freight 
service, 44 hours in through passenger service, 
and 13 hours in suburban passenger service. 
Their present program calls for complete dieseli- 
zation in Chicago as follows: Freight in 1960. 
through passenger in 1955, and suburban pas- 
senger in 1957. 

Michigan Central Railroad Company — 2 daily 
engine hours in freight service. This coal-burn- 
ing freight service operates between the Michigan 
Central Kensington yards and the Indiana-Illinois 
State Line. The present program of the Michigan 
Central calls for dieselization of this freight 
service by 1960. 



The New York, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad 
Company (Nickel Plate) — 16 hours in freight 
service, 3 hours in through passenger service. The 
Nickel Plate has set no date for the completion 
of its dieselization program in the Chicago area. 
The following railroads are those which expect 
to have all their services dieselized during the years 
1953 and 1954: 

Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad Com- 
pany — 8 engine hours, shown in switching serv- 
ice, is for emergency only at the Western Avenue 
Yard. 

Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific R.R. Co. — 27 
engine hours in switching service, consists of 3 
steam engines which were to be converted to oil 
burning in February, 1953. 9 engine hours in 
suburban service which will be dieselized during 
1953. 

Illinois Central Railroad — 6 engine hours in 
switching service and 42 engine hours in pas- 
sengey service is to be dieselized by January 1, 
1954, by City Council ordinance passed October 
31, 1952. 

Minneapolis, St. Paul & Sault Ste. Marie Rail- 
road Company — 18.7 engine hours in switching 
service expected to be dieselized in 1954. 1.1 en- 
gine hours in through passenger service expected 
to be dieselized in 1954. 

The Pennsylvania Railroad — 309 engine hours 
in switching service, which was to be dieselized 
in 1954, but due to increased business is now 
doubtful. 3.8 engine hours in freight service will 
be dieselized in 1954. 1 engine hour in through 
passenger service will be dieselized in 1953. 
The following trunk-line railroads, 100% diesel- 
ized, are: 

The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway 
System, operating between Chicago and the west 
coast. 

The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Company, 
operating between Chicago and the east coast. 

Pere Marquette Railway Company, operating 
between Chicago and Buffalo. 

Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad, operating 
between Chicago, Evansville, St. Louis and points 
south. 

Chicago Great Western Railway Company, op- 
erating between Chicago, Iowa and Minnesota. 

Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville Railway 
Company (Monon), operating between Chicago 
and Southern Indiana. 

Erie Railroad Company, operating between 
Chicago and the east coast. 

Gulf, Mobile and Ohio Railroad Company, oper- 
ating between Chicago, St. Louis and the Gulf of 
Mexico. 

Wabash Railroad Company, operating between 
Chicago, Detroit, St. Louis and Kansas City. 
While your staff has not been officially notified of 
any changes in motive power use by the railroads, 
we are aware that improvements have been made 
since January 1, 1953, according to press releases, 
and it is for this reason that we feel that those 
railroads aforementioned which are not 100% die- 
selized should be invited to again appear before 
your Committee, for the purpose of stating their 
present motive power picture and their motive 
power program for the future. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Earl B. Anderson, 
Engineer.

Whereas, The people of the 36th Ward and the 
surrounding communities are now served only by 
surface routes of local transportation requiring 
long rides on local buses to reach the remaining

City Comptroller's and Departmental Estimates for 
Year 195^. 

Also the City Comptroller's and Departmental Esti- 
mates for the year 1954, submitted by J. H. Dillard, 
City Comptroller, transmitted with a communication 
addressed to the Mayor and the City Council under 
date of October 28, 1953, reading as follows: 

"The Comptroller submits herewith a report of 
departmental estimates of funds necessary to de- 
fray expenses for 1954, together with balance 
sheets showing his estimates of the appropriable 
resources available for all funds and his estimates 
for appropriation of these resources to the de- 
partments. 

"Departmental requests for the year 1954 for 
Corporate Purposes are $117,105,976, which is 
$13,417,556 in excess of estimated appropriable 
resources. 

"The amount available for appropriations for 
1954 is $2,486,987 more than the total amount 
appropriated from this Fund in the original and 
supplemental ordinances for 1953. A substantial 
part of this is absorbed by increased allowances to 
the Board of Election Commissioners, the Police 
Department and for the removal of cornice from the 
City Hall. 

"Due to the action of the Court with respect to 
collection of Cigarette Taxes, and the uncertainty 
as to when this matter will be adjudicated, no 
revenue from this source has been included in the 
estimates. 

"Some changes have been made both in the con- 
tent and the form of the report this year. In 
prior years, it has been the practice to include 
only the Corporate, Water, Vehicle Tax and Bond 
Redemption and Interest Funds in the printed re- 
port, and to transmit the other funds separately. 
This year all funds have been included. 

"The form has been designed to show more 
clearly where the 1954 estimates differ from the 
1953 budget. Extensions of figures are only made 
where changes are requested, for example: if Col- 
umn 6 and Column 7 are blank, there is no change 
from the 1953 budget. If a department has request- 
ed a different number or amount than for 1953, 
this is shown in Column 6. In such case, if Column 
7 is blank, the Comptroller has allowed this item. 
Otherwise the amount of his recommendation is 
shown. 

"These changes were developed in cooperation 
with the Finance Committee Staff, and it is hoped 
the new form will not only facilitate the work of 
the Council in its consideration of the budget, but 
lessen the work of the Committee Staff in prepara- 
tion for the printing thereof." 

— Referred to the Committee on Finance.

The following are the documents attached to the

Department of Public Works 
Bureau of Engineering 

Chicago, October 9, 1953. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Finance Committee of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On June 19, 1953, I wrote to your 
committee transmitting a form of agreement be- 
tween the City of Chicago and the United States 
of America pertaining to certain easements 
through property owned by the United States, be- 



tween the W. Bank of the Chicago River and the 
Post Office Building for the construction of the 
Congress Street Superhighway, and the extension 
of the Milwaukee-Dearborn-Congress Subway, and 
providing for other considerations and grants of 
rights by both the City and the United States. 

In this letter I requested that authority be grant- 
ed by the City Council for the Mayor and the City 
Clerk to execute this agreement on behalf of th£ 
City of Chicago. This authority was granted by 
order of the City Council, passed on August 18, 
1953 (C.J.p.5415). 

Since that time we have joined with the General 
Services Administration of the United States in 
revisions of the agreement. These revisions have 
consisted mainly of the elimination of repetitious 
wording, and a simplification of the document, but 
do not change the substance of the agreement. I 
am transmitting herewith a photostatic copy of the 
agreement which is acceptable to them. This form 
of agreement has been reviewed by the Corporation 
Counsel's staff and they have approved it on be- 
half of the City, but recommend that inasmuch as 
the agreement has been changed in form and in

the City of Chicago, said area being hereinafter 
more fully described, and found that it is a slum 
and blighted area of not less in the aggregate than 
two (2) acres where buildings or improvements, 
by reason of dilapidation, obsolescence, overcrowd- 
ing, faulty arrangement or design, lack of ventila- 
tion, light and sanitary facilities, excessive land 
coverage, deleterious land use or layout, or any

the public safety, health, morals or welfare; and 
Whereas, redevelopment of said area will be in

be approved by the Commission, the City Council 
of the City of Chicago and the State Housing

tion adopted by the Commission, and a certified 
copy thereof shall be delivered to the State Housing

assistance provided by Title I of the Housing Act 
of 1949 to assist local slum clearance and urban 
redevelopment projects; and 

Whereas, it is necessary that surveys be made

Whereas, it is recognized that Title I of the 
Housing Act of 1949 requires that contracts for 
financial assistance thereunder impose certain obli- 
gations and responsibilities upon local public agen- 
cies availing themselves of such financial assist- 
ance, including among other things: (1) the ap- 
proval of the redevelopment plan by the governing 
body of the locality in which the project is situated, 
with appropriate findings (a) that financial aid by 
the Federal Government is necessary, (b) that the 
redevelopment plans for the redevelopment areas 
in the locality will afford maximum opportunity,

a whole, for the redevelopment of such areas by 
private enterprise, and (c) that the redevelopment 
plan conforms to a general plan for the development 
of the locality as a whole; (2) the provision of local 
grants-in-aid; (3) the development of a feasible 
method for the relocation of families displaced 
from the project area; and (4) the several other 
local obligations and responsibilities that are im- 
posed pursuant to Title I of the Housing Act of 
1949 in connection with the undertaking and carry- 
ing out of slum clearance and urban redevelopment 
projects; and 

Whereas, pursuant to Title I every contract for 
a Federal capital grant will require local grants-in- 
aid in connection with the project which, together 
with the local grants-in-aid to be provided in con- 
nection with all other projects of the local public 
agency on which contracts for Federal capital 
grants have been made, will be at least equal to 
one-third of the aggregate net project costs in- 
volved in such projects; and 

Whereas, such local grants-in-aid may be pro- 
vided by a state, municipality or other public body, 
or by any other entity, and may consist of dona-

Police Department has recently issued an accident 
report which reveals that at the viaduct of the

Comprehensive Superhighway System). 

On motion of Alderman Cullerton the City Council 
took up for consideration the report of the Committee 
on Finance deferred and published October 14, 1953, 
page 5811, recommending that the City Council pass 
a proposed order transmitted with the committee's

Having received and considered the letter dated 
October 8, 1953 from the Commissioner of Public 
Works stating that the City acquired the 10 story 
industrial building and the adjoining 2 story build- 
ing, designated as Building 52, situated at 732 W. 
Van Buren Street within the right-of-way of the 
Northwest Expressway; that bids have been re- 
ceived for the wrecking or moving of Building No. 
52, but due to the fact that the low bidder pro- 
posed to wreck the building all bids were rejected; 
that the low bid for wrecking the building was 
$144,000; that he has now received an offer to

enter into a contract to move Building No. 52 from 
the right-of-way for the sum of $140,000, which 
is less than the lowest bid previously received for 
wrecking which' was rejected; that vacant land 
exists east of Building No. 52; that this vacant 
land together with a parcel of land which was ac- 
quired for superhighway purposes would be of 
sufficient area to accommodate this building and 
to which it could be moved; that Mr. Sam Shatten 
who has made this offer to move the building owns 
or controls the vacant land mentioned and has of- 
fered the City $33,000. for the additional land 
needed for the building relocation; that this offer 
of $33,000. is almost twice what the City originally 
paid for the land; that the land that was acquired 
for the superhighway will no longer be needed if 
the building is moved since the wall of the building 
will form a retaining wall along the east side of 
the highway; that the land was formerly acquired 
to permit the construction of a back-slope for the 
east side of the expressway; that it is in the finan- 
cial interest of the City to retain valuable property 
on the tax rolls wherever possible; that in addi- 
tion the right-of-way for the expressway can be 
cleared at considerable savings to the City and will 
retain a substantial building for the printing trades 
of a type which is extremely scarce in the city of 
Chicago; that retaining this building for special 
tenants may well preclude many business firms 
now occupying the building from moving to loca- 
tions outside the city; that in view of all the bene- 
fits to be derived from moving Building No. 52 
he is recommending for approval a draft of an 
order authorizing the Purchasing Agent, City of 
Chicago, to enter into a contract between the City 
and Sam Shatten whereby Mr. Shatten for the sum 
of $140,000 to be paid by the City to Mr. Shatten 
agrees to move Building No. 52, situated at 732 
W. Van Buren Street, from the right-of-way of the 
Northwest Expressway; it is hereby 

Ordered, That the City Council hereby approves 
and authorizes the Purchasing Agent to enter into 
a contract between the City and Mr. Sam Shatten 
whereby Mr. Shatten for the sum of $140,000.00 to 
be paid by the City to him agrees to move Building 
No. 52 situated at 732 W. Van Buren Street from 
the right-of-way of the Northwest Expressway.
